Feature request: Clue Step counter stream to Adafruit IO

with foot pod support. ANT+ and BLE foot pods are very accurate, as shown in this review about the Stryd:

https://fellrnr.com/wiki/Stryd

the most accurate is the Stryd, which does not need to be calibrated. But a callibrated foot pod is as accurate as a Stryd, and more accurate as GPS. Matlab already has an example with a food pod:

Matlab is difficult to use for mobile applications. Adafruit has a wrist based step counter:

I compared wrist based step counting once to the android app a training tracker from Dr. Ing. Rainer Blind, which counts the steps from a foot pod:

to have an alternative to the almost non hackable Garmin devices, I miss the following device:

a Clue step counter:

An Adafruit IO based alternative to the closed source Garmin eco system would be highly desirable. This device could be combined with the other devices I suggested here in the Adafruit forum.
